Lug a Jug to Promote Clean Water for Developing Countries
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Where: Southern Community Park in Chapel Hill
Lug a Jug is the brainchild of United Solar Initiative, whose vision is to see the energy industry united in leveraging their collective resources to use solar power to provide clean water, better education, and better healthcare to people living in under-resourced communities throughout the world. Lug-a-Jug 6K’s basic idea is to simulate a day in the life of people in Africa (mostly women and girls) who have to walk on average 6K every day to fetch water. Teams of solar workers will lug a jug 3K empty and then lug it 3K back full of water without spilling. Sounds like good entertainment for a good cause!
